Weekend Getaway


Masjid Kapitan tower overlooking the blue sky

Frontage of Masjid Kapitan

One of the Chinese Temple-forgot the name..very old building with a central court

Roof decorations

Purposely make it black-and-white to get more "feel" :)

Prewar shophouses with narrow lane in between

A narrow corridor leading to Khoo Kongsi. I like the contrasting blue hue and shadows.

An ancient chinese architecture with intricate carvings and interior deco. Khoo kongsi.

Hungry turtles grabbing their meal. I have never seen such active turtles haha..

The new giant Kuan Yin statue on top. Visible from afar but nothing special though...Have to spend rm4 to use the mini-elevator to reach there somemore..

A pavilion with a pool of koi fish. The fishes swim towards my direction when i stand near the pool. Im soo.. attractive even the fishes cannot tahan my power of seduction lo..LOL

Very detailed wall graffiti..

Looks like a vase with some evil power sealed inside hahah...

 Curse of the Golden Flower.. I still remember the movie poster...
So much golden blings in the movie to portray the abundance and prosperity of old China dynasty. And yet their empress doesn't have enough fabric to make a proper size bra?? See how tight Gong Li's boobs were squeezed until going to explode!! Poor thing...

Delicious Assam Laksa. The broth is so thick with fish meat! Simply heavenly!

Koay Tiao Thng. The soup is nice but innards is not my cup of tea la..

Fried Cintan Mee. Super nice!

Fried Jawa Mee. My first time trying a fried version. Not bad at all.

Koay Chap. Nice broth but again pork stomach i dun like..

Pancake with tuna and crabstick fillings. Refreshing!

"Wu Tao Gou" (Yam cake) @ New World Park. Best one i tasted so far. Literally melts in your mouth! The prawn is sliced so thinly. Very soft and fine texture indeed.

"Zap Guo Bing" (Iced Mixed Fruit?). Abit expensive by Penang standard but the perfect elixir for the hot weather!

Saw this cat at nearby Pet shop. The fur is like leopard lo. I also wanna be like her cos its FRIDAY!

See..even THEY agree with me lo. Its time to take a BREAK!!

Enjoy ur weekend everyone!

@anton: "potential food" is abit confusing. I was thinking i become the bait for a second there.
Yalo i admit im a cheapskate so dont ever ask me to belanja makan hor...the one dreaming of driving a BEEMER should belanja instead :D

Gratitude said...

It takes a cheapskate to be able to save enough money to buy a beemer! :P

@Kenny: Thanks! Too bad i only own a simple point-and-shoot instead of dSLR. Otherwise the quality will be a notch better. Cheapskate like me will be heartache to spend so much on a camera...:P
